The past five years have brought many challenges for companies in the Trailer, Caravan and Motor Vehicle Body Manufacturing industry. Poor economic conditions at the start of the period led to dismal consumer and business confidence, which negatively affected demand for the industry's products. Freight operators, a major market for the industry, suffered from lower freight volumes, while households postponed large discretionary purchases, such as motor vehicles or new caravans, due to uncertainty about the future. Conditions have improved over the second half of the period, but industry revenue still remains far below its pre-recessionary peak.
Companies in this industry manufacture bodies for motor vehicles, trailers, semi-trailers, caravans and containers used for transport purposes.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
